Nice steel. Just remember, knife fights are like American Idol. I don't give a shit how good you think you are, you're going to get cut.

what makes one of those knives (the thinner folding kind posted first in this forum) better than my gerber gator? it has a 3" blade and the back half is serrated.

i guess one advantage is that the grip looks thinner, which means it would be less noticeable in a pocket.


i wouldnt mind picking up a new knife, i just want ot know if there are any benefits.

Nice knives.

I have a Ka-bar with a 50/50 combo blade in my emergency kit also. The knife is heavy enough to do the job, but light enough to carry around on your back. I'm sure there are better and heavier knives than the Ka-bar, but to me this knife is the best compromise between weight and strenght, and of course cost. The 1095 alloy steel is not the uber-tactical cultery steels of today, but it is a spring steel is used to make road grader blades, real tough stuff.

I got it from SmokeyMountainKnifeWorks


It was $9 bucks plus shipping, $14.98 Delivered but they may be out now.

Do a Yahoo search for S&W "Special Tactical" and you should get lots of hits, make sure you LOOK AROUND the prices for this knife are anywhere from $10 to $50 Dollars

I have one of the old S&W SWAT knives that came out about 8 years ago. It's held up well.

"It ain't a knife unless you can cut your way out of an aircraft with it!"~~Wish I could remember which knifemaker said that.

well, at least one one the knives mentioned here is made in the USA

Yeah, the ka-bar.

I hope you guys who carry the S&W knives, carry something else. Why trust your lives to only a hunk of Chinese steel.

I have had a FL3500 tanto for almost 8 years and it has been a really good knife. The blade is bead blasted 440C.

+1

I was looking at one of those S&W at a gun show last weekend for $10. Looked good till I seen CHINA on the side of it. I've always had good luck with Ka-bar. CRKT is another of my favorites(made in Taiwan but it's hodn up well)

FWIW
I did the whole tac/folder thing, but always came back to my Victorinox SAK. I could never keep the liner locks clean, and some of them started to rust. They became more trouble than they were worth.

I carry a SAK in my pocket, a Camillus boot knife in my boot, and a .40 S&W on my belt.

I had one of the original "SWAT" knives for years, hopefully this one will hold up just as well.

With the thick Tanto type blade and the fact its made outta Hammer Forged 440 Stainless I am VERY optimistic. Plus for 14.98 Shipped it was a dang good price
